Change has had a domino effect in the Museum this year. Deconstructing the outdated African Gallery led to a deinstallation of the Marble Court balcony, which has long featured nearly all-white New England artists and especially landscapes. Just as our Absences project uses blank spaces to envision new possibilities, the empty balcony allowed us to reconsider this longstanding tradition.
Likewise, abstract artworks make room for the imagination. What do you see? What do you interpret? What do you reimagine?
Support for this installation is provided by the Joan Kalkin Acquisitions Endowment
